That I understand when you say that you're tired from a long night of diabetes.
I understand when your heart skips a beat, waiting for the meter to tick down.
I understand what it's like when your brain lingers, trying to consider all the variables and figure out the numbers racing through your mind.
I understand what it's like to feel as if the rest of the world goes on with their lives, while you feel stuck behind.
I understand that you look and listen for signs of breathing as soon as you walk into the bedroom.
I understand the frustration that comes when well meaning people are constantly telling you how your child can be cured.
I understand the feeling of victory when you see 24 hours of target numbers.
I understand the thrill of ordinary when you see your child participating in everyday normalcy.
And I just wanted you to know.
